Benson takes on the CRO role having spent more than 10 years at AWS in multiple senior executive roles including Enterprise Sales, Business Development, and Digital Native Strategy.

Benson said: "I could not be more excited to join Matillion. The role presents the perfect combination of technology, people and culture, making it an easy decision to join particularly as we move beyond the hype of artificial intelligence to real-world use cases.

"With the explosion of data in the enterprise and rise of AI, Matillion is well positioned to execute and innovate for the future."

Matthew Scullion, Matillion co-founder and CEO, said: "Eric is a revenue leader that has delivered consumption-based growth strategies, built channels and scaled sales teams for some of the largest cloud vendors in the world.

"Eric brings a wealth of experience working in cloud for more than a decade, building consumption-based go-to-market strategies that shaped how we consume technology today.

"This skillset is perfectly placed to make the most of the extraordinary market opportunity at Matillion as the Data Productivity Cloud continues to evolve and integrate an ever-growing roster of new features, including industry-first AI functionality to help solve the productivity gap in data engineering."

Matillion recently announced its standing in the AI space with the launch of a range of features augmenting data engineering, delivering real-world use cases with pushdown AI and ETL.
